Thousands of items for mobile home owners, travel trailer owners, and all camping enthusiasts are now handled by this department. A large part of this growth can be attributed to the fact that Panama Trailer Sales specializes in "hard-to-find" items. A very important asset to this department is Jeim Mix, who manages the parts department. He does an excellent job in obtaining items needed by mobile home owners.

Panama Trailer Sales also is BY VERN MILLER Staff Writer There are not too many ways that a juvenile detention center can be much of a home, In fact the only way to make it a successful enterprise is to make it seem less of a center without endangering Its purpose. "We try to give the kids here the kind of love and caring that they should be receiving In their own homes, " said James Heisner, director of the local center of the Division of Youth Services. The Panama City Juvenile Detention Center has only been under the wing of the State for about five months and in that short time span numerous advances have been made in the area of child care. The purpose of the center is to detain youths until arrangements are made to place them in volunteer homes, send them to reform institutions or set them free. By law the youths cannot stay at the center any longer than 30 featuring the Coachmen, deluxe Jays. In i^ ^ ""j travel trailer.

Coast Guard Regulations Effective Next Month The U.S. Coast Guard, tasked with the responsibility of preventing maritime pollution, reminds all mariners of the new pollution prevention regulations which go into effect on July 1 of this year.

Vessels that have a capacity of carrying 250 or more barrels of oil or oil by-products are subject to the new regulations. The regulations also apply to any shore side transfer facility which services a vessel of 250 barrel capacity. Oil tank trucks and railway tank cars are included in the definition of transfer facilities if the vessel which they are servicing meets the 250 barrel or more criteria. Also effected will be the recreational boater. The regulations require that all vessels must have a means to discharge oily bilge slops to a reception facility. Further, recreational boat or vessel operators in general are prohibited from draining any oil into the bilges of his vessel. To remind operators of the prohibition of draining oil into the bilges, all vessels 26 feet or longer, must display a placard in the machinery spaces or at the bilge and ballast pump control station stating the following: "The Federal Water Pollution Control Act prohibits the discharge of oil or oily waste into or upon the navigable .waters and contiguous zone of the United States if such discharge causes a film or sheen upon, or discoloration of, the surface of the water. Violators are subject to a penalty of $5,000." .The owner or operator of any vessel or facility from which a harmful quantity of oil has been discharged is subject to a civil penalty of not more than $5,000. Also, failure to notify the Coast Guard of a discharge may result in criminal court action with the possibility of receiving a fine of up to $10,000 and-or imprisonment of up to one year. The civil penalty provision Is administered by the Coast Guard with the law requiring that where a discharge occurs and a polluter is identified a civil penalty must be assessed. The Coast Guard does not have the discretion to limit the penalty to a letter of warning or take into account the actions of the polluter in cleaning up. and have been convicted one way or the other. There are occasional instances however, where nothing will have happened to a 'student' within thirty days and the center is left with no other alter native but to let the youth free on the streets. The personnel in charge of watching over the young law offenders are labeled child care workers and they are quick to point out that they are not counselors. They are temporary guardians of juvenile law breakers. "We talk with the kids when they want to talk and in general just treat them the same way we would treat anyone else," said child care worker Elyse Fleming. "All of these kids can be mean," she added, "and we try to show them that there are other ways that they can act to achieve their desires." "Smoking is not allowed In the detention center," said Heisner and we try to discourage bad language. "We try to make meals a less institutionalized affair and we try to teach them some manners." "In general we (the child care workers) try to be examples for the youths," said Heisner. "Sometimes we are successful in planting the seed of curiosity in a child," added Miss Fleming. The hardest part of being a child care worker is keeping the 'students' occupied. Through a series of craft projects in which all of the youths participate idleness is minimized. One wall of the center is covered with murals that were painted on the spur of the moment. When the wall is full KEEPING BUSY—Whetherits playing foosball, or basketball, watching TV, or listening to music, or working at a craft the occupants of the Juvenile Detention Center are given little time to themselves. It is hoped that by keeping the 'Students' occupied they will find some worthwhile interest to pursued Child Care Worker Scott Ingram, center, plays a game of foosball with a detained juvenile as Jim Heisner, director of the center looks on. the murals are all painted over and another canvas is ready. Old crates become tables and decoupage wall hangings, decorate the activities room. But the workers at the center explain that whatever craft or recreation project is attempted only help from the state and from volunteers can make it a continuing success. "A lot of people don't even know we are here," added Miss Fleming. But the work of child care workers has not gone completely unnoticed. The week of June 16 through 22 we designated by Gov. Reubin Askew as "Group Child Care Week" in a proclamation signed June 4. Gets Degree A 1968 graduate ofChlpola Junior College, Jack B.
